Weather in 1st week of February

by icecream88

I’m planning to go to Kona, HI Jan 31 – Feb 7, 2009 and was wondering what the weather will be like. Will it be sunny/rainy/stormy? What is the temperature like?
Thinking of staying at the Wyndham Kona Hawaiian Resort. What is there to do around there? Is this a good area to stay in?

Thanks!

You are close to the sights in the heart of Kona. However, not quite close enough to walk it. View the map on google:

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=75-5961+Alii+Drive,+Kailua-Kona,+HI+96740&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=67.548891,81.035156&ie=UTF8&ll=19.628238,-155.988328&spn=0.010045,0.009892&t=h&z=16

That place is a huge timeshare. I'm sure it's a long walk just to get Ali'i Drive. Then you need to head north into Kona. Like I said - too far to walk.

With a rental car (a must), you'll be able to explore plenty around here.

The weather? Well, Kona is usually dry. Much more dry than Hilo. But you never know for sure. But I can say that the terrain reveals rainfall around here. And that is dry looking. For the pro's opining on weather, look here:

One good thing about your timing is that the humpback whales will be there. Be sure to find a seat along the deepwater coast and look for them. Or, maybe even take a boat tour.

Have a great trip!

Weather shouldn't be a concern. As stated by the previous poster, Kona is on the dry side, Hilo on the wet side.
One other great thing to do near Kona is visit the beaches at Kekaha Kai, a little north of town. They are not very crowded and quite beautiful - one of the highlights of our trip. Directions on how to get there are in one of my tips.

Wireless Internet in Kona?

by SouthPaw1227

My wife & I will be going on our honeymoon to Kona in late August. We're staying at the "Fairfield Hawaii at Kona Hawaiian Resort".

Does anyone know if that resort offers free Wireless Internet access? If not, where's the cloest WiFi hot spot near Kona?

My reasoning is that I'm in a MBA program and will need to access my work while honeymooning (tragic, I know!)

Thanks!

Beach Dog is a small shack in kona town near the King Kam hotel and they offer Internet Access for a week with one flat rate I believe. There are several places in Kona with hotspots, Denny's for one. I'm not sure about the hotel though. They may have it.

RE: Wireless Internet in Kona?

by LocalJapGuy

The places that I know of that have wireless internet for free are in the Kona Coast Shopping Center Food Court, Kona Brewing Company and Island Lava Java. There are also T-Mobile Hotspots (fee based) at Starbucks and Borders Bookstore.

Yes, There is free Wireless Internet in the lobby. They are working on having access in the units but it has not happened yet.

Travel Tips for Kailua-Kona

Turtle Gate

by sarams

I was taking a stroll along Alii Drive when I came across this rather interesting gate. Since this area definitely has a sea turtle theme, this fit right in. It turns out it belongs to a B&B, though I didn't try it because I was staying at the hotel where my symposium was being held.

Golf - A golfers paradise with...

by annk

Golf - A golfers paradise with the best golfing of all the Hawaiian Islands (per my avid golfing co-workers). There are 18 golf courses ranging from municipal to championship with some of the best facilities in the world. At one point the Big Island was trying to lure Japanese tourists with the wonderful golf courses. Unfortunately, they were not too successful, due to the limited amount of shopping available.

by Sweetberry1

This pic was taken on my last night here. Sonja danced her Beautiful Traditional Hawaiian Dance, before the 'Hot Lava' Show began. She then wrapped her gorgeous 'Fresh Plumeria Lei' around me. She puts a lot of love into making her own Leis, and I was honoured to wear it ;-) ....... One very important tip, You must wear flowers in your hair Girls ;-)
And make sure they are Real... There is no excuse here, they are growing everywhere. ;-))

Swimming with the Dolphins with Sunlight on Water

by faeriegal

This was so awesome! Native Hawaiian Captain Michael led this beautiful, spiritual tour aboard his boat. We found a pod of dolphins and swam 3 different times with them. There were about 50 of them! Some baby dolphins too. The boat is small so its a small group of about 6 people. which is more intimate. It was a one in a lifetime opportunity and I highly recommend it. We paid $125 per person. Worth every penny!

Michael also performs weddings and leads mystical island tours. Arrive at the boat ramp early. He leaves at 8am, so eat breakfast before you arrive. There is no lunch, but he provides snacks. We brought a few more since we are ona weird diet. Also, bring swimsuit, strong sunscreen, beach towel, snorkel and fins and an underwater camera.

Don't believe it if anyone...

by derats

Don't believe it if anyone tells you the Big Island lacks beaches. It actually has 80 or more, and new ones appear - and disappear - regularly.
In 1989 a new black-sand beach, Kamoamoa, formed when molten lava shattered as it hit cold ocean waters. Some beaches are just a little hard to get to - several are hidden behind elaborate hotels or down unmarked roads for which you'll want a four-wheel-drive vehicle or dauntless hiking spirit (or both) - and others have dangerous undertows and should be used for sunning and fishing rather than swimming.
In Kailua-Kona and even in Keauhou, it's true, there are no broad expanses of coral sand. The most beautiful, swimmable white-sand beaches stretch along the Kohala Coast. The surf tends to get rough in winter. To be safe, swim only when you see local people swimming in the area. Few public beaches have lifeguards or staffed beach centers.
